Nice layout, great ambience, good menu, delicious food, efficient staff. We chose Waterline for our 'night out' and to watch the sun set. It was a good choice. Like everywhere in Rarotonga, it's pricey, but we had a lovely evening.

We enjoyed a very tasty lunch on the verandah just metres from the water. The service was great and a tasty menu to choose from. I wish we could have come back for a dinner - next time!
